(Updated on March 26, 2021) Is your student thinking about taking summer school courses with us? If so, you might want to encourage them to apply for the Jack Rousso Scholarship for Accessible Education. Three times every year, Apex Learning Virtual School (ALVS) recognizes students who use challenges as an opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed. Students who already take individual courses with us are eligible to apply and could win two tuition-free semester courses. Scholarship winners can choose their courses from our full catalog of middle school and high school courses. Scholarship winners can enroll in their courses after they have been awarded. Both new and current Part-Time students are eligible to apply for this scholarship. ALVS will select scholarship recipients who exemplify academic achievement, unwavering persistence, and a commitment to overcoming obstacles. These students will also demonstrate the desire to challenge themselves to reach higher accomplishments both in life and academia, which are core values of ALVS.
